The txalaparta, aka tx ( wooden plank percussion played by two people (improvisation) hitting the insulated planks with thick wooden sticks. Played by the Basque ( see Kepa Junkera) players Harkaitz de San Vicente & Igor Otxoa with other International sounds. Everything is a very unique cool sound.
